Default Federal Judge Rules Govt Does Not Have To Accept New DACA Requests

This is a nice change, but since DACA was illegally created, it should be eliminated.

U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled that the federal government is not legally required to accept new requests under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. His ruling on Friday goes against his own initial order from Aug. 3, where he held that President Donald TrumpĎs administration must begin reviewing new applications under DACA.

According to The Daily Caller, Bates held that illegal children brought to the U.S. by their parents can renew their DACA applications, but said the administration does not have to process any new ones.

His stunning ruling also comes as seven states are currently locked in a court battle over whether DACA is an illegal program and should be terminated all together. His ruling could pave the way for the statesí plan to stop Obamaís executive order in court.

Bates reversing his own decision comes after Trump ended the Obama-era DACA program last year and gave Congress six months to pass a legislative solution. Of course, lawmakers have failed spectacularly to make any substantial progress, but Bates reversal has led many to believe that the law is on Trumpís side regarding this issue.

On Aug. 3, Bates ruled that the DACA program must be restarted by Aug. 23.

The government warned that restarting the program would force the agency to begin processing roughly 50,000 applications rather than focusing on applications from legal immigrants and those on work permits.

The government said that rebooting the program would mean more than 100,000 total DACA applications would need to be processed, putting an almost insurmountable strain on government agencies and its ability to effectively analyze all applications.

Bates agreed that restarting the program would put too much stress on the government, and added that he believes it will lead to confusion from applicants.

ďBecause that confusion would only be magnified if the courtís order regarding initial DACA applications were to take effect now and later be reversed on appeal, the court will grant a limited stay of its order and preserve the status quo pending appeal, as plaintiffs themselves suggest,Ē Bates said in his opinion.

As previously reported by Conservative Daily Post, the Obama-era DACA program has protected more than 800,000 illegal children who came to the U.S. with their parents, who also arenít authorized to legally be in the U.S., other estimates put that number at around 2 million, including some violent criminals.

Obama used executive power, bypassed Congress, and enacted the amnesty program that protected arguably millions of illegal immigrants.

Trumpís administration and a number of states have argued the program is illegal. When the president has attempted to scale back what many call an unlawful action, some activist judges have used their power on the court to force the administration to reboot the program.

Itís unclear why Bates reversed his own decision, but apparently, he realized the implications of his decision ó which would have put a nearly insurmountable strain on the government and could have resulted in a national security crisis.
